Get Glowing with MAC Highlighters

Get Glowing with MAC Highlighters

On top of all their cult products, MAC has especially become famous for their glow-inducing highlighters, which provide exceptional radiance to the skin.

A Guide to MAC Highlighters

When it comes to achieving that famous MAC glow, there are 3 key products you need to be aware of and have in your arsenal at all times.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish

This is perhaps one of the most well-known MAC highlighters and is loved by everyone from makeup artists to models and bloggers.

The powder itself is slow-baked, making it super smooth and creamy, while the texture feels like velvet and blends easily into the skin. The result is a “your complexion but better” as the highlight can be worn sheer for a natural radiance, or built up and used wet for a stronger colour.

The highlighter is also infused with MAC’s exclusive 77-Mineral Complex, which is enriched with conditioning extracts such as Shea Butter to help nourish the skin.

  • Cheeky Bronze – Light coral with a pale golden glimmer.
  • Global Glow – Light golden tan with silver speckles.
  • Gold Deposit – As its name suggests, this powder is like a little golden nugget.
  • Lightscapade – A candlelit beige with lilac shimmer.
  • Soft and Gentle – Pale peachy-bronze.
  • Warm Rose – Baby pink with rose shimmer.

MAC Extra Dimension Skinfinish

MAC’s Extra Dimension Skinfinish is a unique hybrid formulation that defies all highlighting odds.

The formula itself is a liquid, powder and cream highlighter all in one. Formulated with liquid powder technology, the actual highlighter is first created as a liquid, and then moulded into a pan, where it is baked to achieve that famous creamy powder texture. The result is a beautiful and gilded product that gives you a gorgeous and unrivalled luminosity.

Free from talc and non-acnegenic, the highlighter is suitable for even the most blemish prone skin as it won’t cause any breakouts. Instead, its lightweight and smooth texture imparts a lovely light onto the skin that can be worn sheer or built up to your desired colour.

  • Show Gold – Peachy golden with pink speckles.
  • Doublegleam – Neutral beige with silver shimmer.
  • Beaming Blush – A golden pink that imparts a lovely rosy hue.
  • Soft Frost – Like pure snow; a frosted white with iridescent violet.

MAC Strobe Cream

MAC’s Strobe Cream is as undoubtedly one of the most well-known cosmetics products on the planet.

Part skincare, part highlighter, the cream works to moisturise and illuminate your skin for a beautifully natural and healthy glow. Inspired by backstage lighting techniques, which impart a delicate radiance, the cream contains a blend of antioxidants and Vitamins B5, B12 A and E to nourish and condition the skin. It’s also infused with Green Tea Extract, which helps to shield the skin from environmental aggressors, making it your perfect everyday face base.

  • Pinklite – The original strobe cream with delicate pink, pearlised shimmer.
  • Silverlite – A gorgeous silvery, iridescent finish.
  • Redlite – A red pearlised cream.
  • Goldlite – Infused with golden pearls for a light-reflecting radiance like no other.
  • Peachlite – The closest to your natural skin tone, with a peach glimmer.
